This nightly update sees the -name option taking on a greater role in the control of widgets. Ordinarily used for specifying ojects in a Gtk CSS file, or in a builder/glade XML file, using the name option will cause the interpretor to create a command for the widget using the string specified by the -name option.

set myButton [gnocl::button -text "Hello World"]

And modified with:

$myButton configure -onClicked { puts %w }

myButton configure -onClicked {puts %w}
